Agro Chem Takes MagnaSpread to Indiana-Illinois Farm Show

Salford BBI MagnaSpread Fertilizer Spreader

Salford BBI dealer Agro Chem of Wabash, Indiana heads to Indianapolis next week for the 36th edition of the Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show.

Held annually at the West Pavilion on the Indiana State Fairgrounds, the Indiana-Illinois Farm Show runs from December 16-18.  The holiday season gathering of the Hoosier and Illini farming communities offers opportunities for learning about new equipment, technology, and techniques from multiple agriculture sectors. Equipment on display at the show will include spreaders, sprayers, seed tenders, tillage, grain handling, tractors, and much more. The show will also feature a selection of exhibitors from the emerging precision agriculture space, offering computer software and GPS systems.

Throughout the show, Gary Truitt of Hoosier Ag Today will coordinate a free seminar series addressing topics ranging from the use of drones in farming to details of the new farm bill programs in Congress.

Salford BBI is proud to once again have its products featured by key Midwest dealer Agro Chem, headquartered in nearby Wabash.  In 2015, Agro Chem will celebrate its 40th anniversary serving farmers in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois. Founded by Ernie Peas, Agro Chem is a true family business much like the family farms it has served so well for multiple generations, with Ernie’s sons Brian, Brad, and Mark now holding leadership roles in the business.

Agro Chem began as a distributor of chemicals, later branching into spraying equipment and precision agriculture technology. The dealership has become a regional leader in the sales of precision fertilizer applicators through its longtime partnership with Salford BBI. Agro Chem stocks a wide range of spreaders optimized for targeted distribution of fertilizer, lime, and organic materials.

At this year’s Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show, the team from Agro Chem will showcase MagnaSpread, Salford BBI’s option-rich flagship line of hydraulic spreaders optimized for application of fertilizer and lime.

Salford BBI is honored to participate in the Indiana-Illinois Farm and Power Equipment Show through Agro Chem.  For more information, head to the show website at
